Recommended Hardware: MotoSim EG-VRC

Using MotosimEG-VRC, is like using advanced 3D CAD software.

It can require computing hardware a little more powerful than the average business machine.

Below is a table displaying a sample of known, good hardware for light and heavy use.

Note:

  • Two monitors are necessary to view the simulation graphics and the virtual pendant.
    • For mobility, a USB monitor is recommended.
  • If upgrading to a more powerful computer is not possible then an external GPU might be an option.

Professional GPU vs Gaming GPU

Many people think that gaming graphics cards (GPU) are sufficient when working with professional 3D software like Motosim.

It is not.  Gaming cards are not designed for the precision required and can result in screen corruption.
